Northern Scythe Championships - Sunday 15th July


The Northern Scythe Championships return for 2018 to the lovely meadow at Lower Winskill Farm which hosted it last year.

There will be talks and walks in the morning on herbal medicine and the history of the farm as well as demonstrations and drop in craft sessions for you to enjoy.

Hot and cold drinks, cakes and a light lunch will be available to buy in the barn at lunchtime and throughout the day.

In the meadow there will be hay making demonstrations (weather dependent of course!) with the highlight of the day being the competition which will be held from around 2 o'clock onwards.

Competitors from all over the country are invited to enjoy mowing in this beautiful location and to experience what it's like to mow upland hay meadow sward. It's a joy!
